Technologies

O3: O3 Technology Uses O-Ports to provide total string freedom. Increases sweet spot size by 54% without increasing the size or length of the racquet or changing the weight or string tension. Also generates a livelier response across the entire string bed, and dramatically improves play at all levels. O-Ports reduce drag, producing faster swing speeds and increases power from anywhere on the court.

TUNGSTEN TRIPLE THREAT: Tungsten is a strong, dense metal, used here to fortify the Triple Braid system, improving stability for more power and precision. Triple Braid is a weighting system that promotes balance and stability: woven titanium, copper, and carbon are placed in three critical racquet locations: 10 o’clock, 2 o’clock, and at the bottom of the handle. Benefits include an expanded sweet spot with less shock to the arm.

It gives great power on serve and volley. HOWEVER,

It gives great power on serve and volley. HOWEVER, too much power and too little control. The balls that I was hitting went everywhere. But, if you try to put extra effort on more spin, you can prevent extreme popping and keep your stroke powerful and nice.

This racquet was my first racquet and it's great! I've

This racquet was my first racquet and it's great! I've had it for almost 3 years - my guard has broke and a bit disappointed with the paint job. I would run the racquet over the net and the black paint would come off but, I love the sweetspot and it makes serving heaven. It's a great racquet for anyone! It also has a balanced weight, which means both power and control. I'm guessing that's why people are so happy with the amount of spin being put on. It's an ideal racquet for all! This racquet has helped my touch - I can now hit drop shots of the baseline consistently almost like a winner :)

Just got this racquet the other day. Take my review

Just got this racquet the other day. Take my review with a grain of salt, because I am just learning how to play. This is my first nice racquet. It seems to provide plenty of power, which makes it tempting to make a short stroke at the ball, but if I follow through then I get a great result. For just learning how to play, I think that this racquet gives me the power I need to work on my form. I am very happy with this purchase, and would recommend it.

I used the White 03 racquet yesterday for the first

I used the White 03 racquet yesterday for the first time. I loved it right away. My shots were going deep with very good control. Low shots were going over the net. The racquet feels solid, and I didn't have to swing as hard. I lowered the tension, which helps. My old racquet was strung much higher, shots were short, and I had to swing much harder. After looking at the specs and viewing customer reviews, I decided on this racquet. I was a little apprehensive because I didn't demo it, but now I'm very happy with the racquet and would highly recommend it.

I bought this after my old Prince Air-O broke. After

I bought this after my old Prince Air-O broke. After 1-200 serves and groundstrokes going long I decided to add 8g of overgrip and enough lead at the top of the handle to bring the racquet up to 11 5/8. This brought it to 4 points headlight and lowered the swing weight to about 275, effectively reducing the tremendous power this racquet produces while increasing maneuverability. The racquet plays extremely well now even though the feel when hit on the sweetspot is almost nonexistent. You do feel mishits but the racquet is so comfortable they don't affect mood too much. Spin is very easy to generate even with the factory installed strings.

Apparently I got the re-issue version of this racquet.

Apparently I got the re-issue version of this racquet. The stock numbers are 10.6oz unstrung, 12.8in balance point, and a swingweight of 290. After a month with this racquet (roughly 65 hours of playtime), I fiddled around with string tension/lead tape and settled in nicely with Big Banger ALU Power 16L strung at 63lbs (prestretched and broken in tension at 59lbs), lead tape at the top of the grip to bring the weight up to 11 7/8 oz with the balance point at 12 3/4 and swingweght of roughly 295. The thing now plays like a dream. This reissue comes with the soft grommet installed. Between that and a string dampener you really only get feedback when hittig outside the sweetspot. It takes getting used to but after a while it's kind of nice. This new version of the O3W has such a wide, stiff frame that if you are the type of player that provides his/her own power you will really need to do whatever you can to reduce what this thing provides because it really has a lot for a 100 sq. in head. I adore the amount of spin generated by this racquet/string setup. Forehands (semi- western) drop in on the baseline like bombs. My two handed backhand goes exactly where I want it. Give yourself a little extra room on slice serves. Mine are moving about 1-2 feet more than they used to. My kickers are bouncing alot higher now as well. With the added weight, volleys/drop shots are effortles. The lower swingweight makes this O3W reissue so maneuverable that I can hit overhead backhands all day and when playing doubles, I can stand right on top of the net with no fear. All in all, this racquet plays extremely well with little adjustments needed.

I used this racquet for about two years and I loved it from the start. I gave it to my coach to string and he strung it far too low. In the mean time, I demoed the Aerogel 200 and I love it. Overall, this is a great racquet and I would say it is worth the demo. I know a lot of girls who play with this and it has improved their game from day one.

I've used many racquets in the past two years but keep coming back to the 03 White. Loved the EXO3 Black as well but it killed my elbow; I feel I have virtually the same performance with the White in a much more arm friendly specification. The racquet has a terrific solid but dampened feel, power to burn with good control, serves lights-out (I don't serve big with most racquets but get some cheap points on serve with this one.) Vastly superior to the EXO3 White, a lighter stiffer frame that suffers much loss of control compared to this one.
